The decision to publish data on Amerindian-induced environmental degradation, and/or warfare is one that weighs heavily on anthropologists. This burden stems from the fact that such documentation may render indigenous communities vulnerable to a host of hostile modern forces. Consequently, some anthropologists argue that such politically volatile information should not be reported. Conversely, many other anthropologists argue against any type of censorship.
The ethical ramifications stemming from the reporting (and the non-reporting) of Amerindian-induced environmental degradation and/or warfare is addressed in a recently published edited volume titled: The Ethics of Anthropology and Amerindian Research: Reporting on Environmental Degradation and Warfare. New York: Springer (2012).
